Sir Al’s e-books

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

The Mo­tor­cy­cle Files – range of Kin­dle e-books writ­ten by Alan Cath­cart – has ex­panded to 24 ti­tles. Thanks to on­line dig­i­tal pub­lish­ing, these can be ac­cessed and down­loaded by any­one wish­ing to build their own li­brary of fully il­lus­trated hands-on in­for­ma­tion about their favourite bikes. Alan’s tests of rac­ing and road bikes in­clude some of the rarest and most sig­nif­i­cant rac­ing mo­tor­cy­cles and ex­otic street­bikes ever built, rang­ing from the pro­to­type 1963 Du­cati Apollo V4 1260, the 1939 su­per­charged AJS 500cc V4 to the four-cylin­der 500GP two-strokes from Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki that lined up on GP grids dur­ing the 1980s and ‘90s. In the case of the Honda NSR500, the File cov­ers the en­tire run of mod­els from 1984 to 2002 of the most suc­cess­ful 500cc racer in Grand Prix his­tory, and is a spe­cial ex­tended is­sue equal to 136 A5 pages. The Mo­tor­cy­cle Files in­di­vid­ual ti­tles can be down­loaded as e-books from Ama­zon or its Kin­dle store for view­ing on all ver­sions of the Kin­dle dig­i­tal reader. Ad­di­tion­ally, by us­ing the free Kin­dle app, they can also be read on sim­i­lar de­vices in­clud­ing iPads and other tablets, lap­tops and even iPhones.
